Haemodialysis Centre


Rotary Club Hamirpur proposes to set up a Haemodialysis Centre at Village Dimmi, Distt. Hamirpur (Himachal Pradesh).

Hamirpur revenue district is a hilly region situated in the foothills of Himalayas. People are poor engaged in agriculture. Economy is agriculture based. Young males either join army or go to bigger cities for livelihood. Per capita income is about US$ 500 per annum. Total population is about 3.9 million. Urban Population is more than 40000. Main urban areas are Hamirpur, Nadaun, Bhota, Barsar, Bhoranj and Sujanpur. Near by revenue districts are Kangra, Bilaspur, Una, Mandi, Chamba & Kullu.

There is no dialysis facility in any of the hospitals in and around the Hamirpur district and the patients have to cover a distance of more than 200 km.

If this project is started at Hamirpur it will not only be used by the people of Hamirpur but surrounding districts of Hamirpur covering a population of more than 1.5 million will be benefited.

Funds for this project in the US have been raised through the efforts of the NIT Hamirpur Alumni Association.
